User food review: Faux Healthy Fast Food - Arby’s Angus Deli Sandwich

UVisit for more food reviews and food news!

Arby's really isn't the first thing you think of when it comes to healthy fast food although they do have some healthy menu items when it comes to their roast beef sandwiches. The chain has recently introduced a new Angus Cool Deli Sandwich sandwich and an Angus Cool Deli Wrap which both look promising in the advertisements as well as on their web-site. The main question is if Arby's would be able to create a fresh and healthy sandwich that would live up to the advertisements that are promoting them as such, or if they would just be another item on the menu.

When you look at what they're advertising it's hard not to think that this sandwich would be pretty tasty right?, wrong. What we found out first hand was that the meat wasn't as nice as we'd hoped it would be and have come to expect from eating Arby's meat all these years. The fixing's that go into this sandwich are what sets it apart from some other fast food sandwiches these days because it's "Topped with crisp lettuce, tomato, red onion, Swiss cheese, mayonnaise, dressed in vinaigrette and popping with banana peppers and pickles." All of these ingredients combined together made a nice flavor combination, however the sandwich it-self was kind of large and had that effect of being too large to eat. This sandwich falls in the line of other fast food items such as Wendy's new Berry Salad or Shakes. If you're looking for a healthy fast food sandwich we suggest you make your own and take it to work or to keep going to Subway and ordering off their Under 500 Calorie Menu. Overall (2 out of 5).

The pros are that the fixing's in the sandwich are a nice touch.

The cons are that the meat isn't that great, the sandwich is plain big, and it's a fake healthy sandwich.
